Oh, I'm well-aware that there's a two way street of douchieness here. As far as I'm concerned the Seahawks and 49ers are rivals that deserve each other. It's just too bad that when they play they both can't lose. Watching them lose Super Bowls back-to-back though would be a fine consolation prize

Crabtree was the total douche when he whacked a man in the face for holding out a friendly hand. That's on video. Sherman's reaction was understandable.

You have got to be kidding me. That was the most disingenuous attempt at sportsmanship I've ever seen. Sherman told him something to the effect of "good game but I'm the best corner in the league." Look I'm no hater of Sherman but lets not distort the story of that game to the point where he is this greatly misunderstood soul. The two don't like each other. Shit talking and hilarity ensued. End of storyl

Well unless Sherman is a liar I don't need to. The quote I got came from him explaining what he said to Crabtree. Maybe he was embellishing the exchange a little bit? I don't know. Most athletes just want to be left alone after having their hearts ripped out on a game ending play. Sherman knows that and had a little fun trolling Crabtree. Not a big deal but it is what it is.

But what do we really have to compare it with? Got any other examples of NFL players screaming about how bad opposing players are right after a victory in a postgame interview?
No, and that is what was so refreshing about it. Post game interviews are usually as exciting as a PAT, but Sherman took it another level. Bravo.
And how is it that Sherman was surprised at the reaction he got? He's got a Communications degree from Stanford after all,, you'd think he'd have some concept of how it would come across *shrug*
He's never before won a NFC championship. If this were the regular season, with a another slate of games exactly 7 days after his little rant, it would have been forgotten. But because his rant occurred a week before the Super Bowl hype machine went into full effect, it is still the biggest NFL story. I could maybe see the hand wringing and pearl clutching if Sheman had used profanity and threatened someone, but that didn;t happen.

Sherman's biggest mistake was coming across as "scary black man" to many Americans and he is suffering the consequences.

If a small shove like that is enough to send Sherman off the deep end (throwing the choking sign around, going full psycho in the interview, and spending the rest of the evening insulting "mediocre" Crabtree), he must have some pretty damn thin skin. For the amount of talking he does, I would have thought he'd be tougher than that.

Regardless of what he said, you don't go up to someone you have issues with, swat them on the ass, and start jawing with them and then expect any sort of different reaction. Not saying Crabtree was right, but Sherman should have expected nothing less. Sherman is either dumber than everyone gives him credit for or he was intentionally baiting Crabtree. Take your pick. Just bear in mind that this isn't a guy who has necessarily developed a reputation as a gracious winner (Anyone remember "You mad, bro?!" ?).

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

I have to laugh when I think of the few people that told me Denver should have kept Tim Tebow. I have not heard any of that kind of talk lately for some reason.

Some radio talk show host I heard on ESPN summed it up best when he said the people rooting for Tebow to be a starting QB in the NFL were doing it for completely non-football reasons.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Did people think they should have kept Tebow even after they signed Peyton Manning? I agree that would be stupid. However, I also would have liked to see him get a chance with another team simply because he won in the playoffs. While I have no doubt others have been motivated by non-football reasons, that's certainly not true with me.

Tebow won in the playoffs by lofting up a wounded duck that should have been picked. If Demaryius Thomas hadn't turned on the jets, that play goes nowhere.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

While it could have been interesting to see if Tebow could have picked anything up from Manning, it was best that they sent him off. Nobody knew the condition of Manning, but you just know that the fans would have been calling for Tebow after the first rough game. Also, Tebow would have made a terrible backup for Manning- their play styles are way too different. Denver would have needed a Manning playbook and a Tebow playbook, because they couldn't just plug Tebow in if Manning went down.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

See what happens if Peyton retires after winning a superbowl (or if he retires because of the neck checkup even if he loses). This is a short window either way without a backup plan, so once Manning takes off, may want Tebow back again after all

well, probably not, but either way, Broncos are going to go from #1 back to the middle pretty quickly. If not this spring, likely next.

Explaining what he said after the fact and what he actually said are two different things. Here's the actual clip (fast forward to about :47 to see the actual exchange).




Sherman runs up to Crabtree, smacks him on the butt (common for football players, and not a sign of disrespect), and says "Hell of a game, hell of a game!" before reaching a hand out for a handshake. Nothing nefarious at all.

He may not be the biggest fan of Crabtree outside of the stadium, but in that stadium there was no jawing with Crabtree. He quite literally ran up to him after the game, extended his hand for a shake, and was pushed in the head. An official came up to separate them, but the damage had been done. I believe AFTER this (when Sherman is now pissed) is when he does the throat choke sign towards Kaepernick (not Crabtree), and gets fined by the league.

When looking at the video evidence, what I see is a guy who went for a post-game handshake.

C'mon now, he chased him down to taunt him. That's not some kind of traditional post-game handshake
